Fin and jawbone cortisol levels were further examined by comparing two washing solvents followed by ELISA assays. This study piloted the feasibility of jawbone cortisol as a novel stress indicator.
Anticancer Efficacy of Photodynamic Therapy with Lung Cancer-Targeted Nanoparticles Ji-Eun Chang1, Hyun-Jong Cho2, Sanghoon Jheon1,3 1Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, 2College of Pharmacy, Kangwon National University, 3Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Seoul National University College of Medicine Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an alternative choice for lung cancer treatment. To increase the therapeutic effect of PDT, lung cancer-targeted nanoparticles combined with chemotherapy were developed. Both in vitro and in vivo anticancer efficacies of PDT with prepared nanoparticles were evaluated.
